When the dominance of the control agenda has been weakened sufficiently, we use interventions that foster acceptance and willingness. Undermining Control The language community largely defines "psychological health" as the absence of distressing or unwanted private content. The dark side of this message is that negative private content is toxic and dangerous, and must be controlled in the name of psychological health. Inherent in this belief is the idea that healthy people can control and eliminate negative private content and thereby gain psychological health.

Hayes et at. , don't stop this job no matter how unsatisfying it is because you have to provide for your family; healthy people don't get divorced, so stay in this entirely unrewarding relationship). If, however, these culturally supported rules could be easily noted, challenged, and changed, cultural practices themselves would be far more difficult to pass from generation to generation. Behavior controlled by the rules contained in relational frames tends to be relatively sensitive to consequences surrounding rule following but relatively insensitive to direct, programmed consequences of other kinds (see Hayes, 1989 for a book length review).

Common sense actions (we will use the example of "going to the store") are a kind of abstract model for contextualistic interpretations. These kinds of events imply an interaction between a person and a setting, and they are whole events, with a history and a purpose, no matter how expansively or minutely they are viewed. For example, "going to the store" implies a reason for going, a place to go, a means to get there, and so on, all mixed together. If the whole is lost, the features lose their meaning.
